  • The "Sport" Button

    What does it actually do? some say it increase power by a very small amount some say it doesn't. Some say it changes the ride and handling. Everyone has a different view.
    What is fact about this mystery button?
    Its surely better just driving with the sport button off most of the time then when you need it press it if it makes a difference.
    Can anyone enlighten me!
    PS i know you can get maps put onto the button so there is a greater increase in power.
    Cheers Ben

      it increases throttle responce and sharpens up the steering and will increase the boost pressure slightly and if you have ids it will stiffen up the shocks

              On the standard car is changes the throttle response so that 50% throttle equals 75% power or something like that. It also weights up the steering slightly. If you have IDS+ it firms up the suspension.

                ^^ as DavidVXR said .... no power increase at all on a standard car. Just a lovely weight to the steering and very sensitive thorttle. and again as above if you have the optional extra of IDS+ suspention then it will stiffen them up too

                  I didn't think it changes the steering? Maybe on later spec cars but it makes no difference on my 55plate. Only the throttle sensitivity.

                    I have a 55 plate too mate and it make it more weighted, and heavy feeling. Great for country roads etc. You def notice it when turned on

                        What 'I' dont understand is, how can a remap stiffen up the suspension, surely theres no electronic connection to the dampers/springs ?

                            Nothing to do with a remap - the button on IDS equipped cars firms up the suspension when pressed

                              I pick the car up saturday so can't do it myself yet.
                              Someone told me after a certain year that all vxr's come with IDS as standard with i didnt think was right??
                              The car i have bought said in the ad it had IDS and an optional
